Student*, professors and nurses In medical schools of the city last night I witnessed an exhibition of "Fit to j Win." the official film of the Public j Health Service, given in the auditor ium of George Washington University | Medical School. j Dr. William Miller Collier, president I of the university, presided at the meet- , ing and explained the nation-wide social hygiene campaign of the gov ? eminent, of which the film "Kit to, Win." is an integral part. He intro- j duced Assistant Surgeon General C. C. Pierce. I>r. Pierce explained the propaganda program of the scrviee undertaken at the direction of the President by an act of Congress for the control I of diseases in this country. He said ! that it w.i-j the medical examina- j tion of men under the selective service att that furnished the data which resulted in a measure, passed' by i 'o/igress .on July 9. establishing the Interdepartmental Social Hygiene!

Neptune and Mercury rule strongly ; for good today, Venus and Mara are adverse. i There is a sign that persistently has j seemed to give warning of continued military activity in which Americans are engaged. Fame for an army officer will give i encouragement to a great movement | in the United States, the seers de | clare, since the act that brings recog ' nition will prove fitness for civil leadership. This is not a favorable day for love affairs and love letters are supposed to be especially perilous during this sway. i There is a sinister sign today that is ' believed to affect romances In which soldiers are concerned, and for that reason caution is counseled. | During this rule women are to posed to be more nervous and change able than under better conditions. The i configuration is not a favorable one ! for domestic peace or harmony. Preachers have a reasonably en ; couraging direction. Matters of a philanthropic nature have a guidance ; that promises benefits.

Written Especially for The Wash ington Herald. Each ?ex is what the other de mands of it to be?there can be no doubt of this. Sex is the founda tion of life and as such must of necessity influence the viewpoint and the actions of every human being. Men have demanded purity of their women. It is rarely that a man mar ries a woman whose past he docs not reepect. and he will tolerate no laxity of life in his sister. But this ha* not been the case with women. The glitter of money and of social position has made women too prone to look favorably upon a man whose past they know to have been im moral. Thlg is not confined to young girls, ignorant of life. It U not generally the young who are worst sinners in this, but their mothers, those who know or ought to know what the man's past may mean, those who are the natural guardians of these innocent and ignorapt girls! Scheming mothers have, time out of mind, encouraged, by every means in their power, their daughter* to marry immoral men. Could anything be more impure in heart than this? Could anything be more degrading? Mothers bartering their daughters and the lives of the unborn for glit tering dust and ashes! And yet this; has been hideously common. Count less multitudes of lives have been wrecked pa*t hope. Children beyond numbering have been born only to die, or to live helpless lives of mis ery, passing on to the third genera tion the taint inherited from their !>arents. Am I unjust in blaming womnn more than men for these terrible things' It is hard to apportion blame ! when both sexes share such a load. It is unusual to lay the greater I slow. False friends may cause trou ble. Children born on this day are likely to be talented and artistic. The^e sub jects of Aquarius will be enterprising, but they usually have many obstacles to overcome.

U-Boai Commander Saves Friend at Sea I/ondon.?An East Const merchant captain probably owes hi j life to the fact thut a I -boat skipper knew him. The Britisher's Fh!p was torpedoed. The crew took to the boats and were ordered along side the submarine. "Hello. &mith." cried the I "-boat com mander. as the captain's boat pulled up. The German had comman<ie?! a Dutch cargo ship before the war and the two had met often.

John McElroy. chair man of the Lincoln committee, said: "That under Lincoln's administra tion the navy of the United States wrote a new and wonderfully bril liant chapter in the naval annals of the world. It made a blockade over 2,000 miles in extent or greater than the seaboard of the whole of Eu rope, with a blockade so perfect and stringent, that it strangled th*? I life of the Confederacy. "Never before had any maritime power attempted more than the j sealing up of one or two great ports.
